Take It From Me: #ShareAwesome with LifeLock & the National PTA

#ShareAwesome with LifeLock & the National PTA


We truly live in a digital world!  From video games to pictures, socializing and shopping--technology is a big part of our lives!  And while technology is so cool, it is also important that we always remember to make safe decisions when it comes to what we do with it. That’s why LifeLock and the National PTA have partnered up to spread helpful knowledge with families on how they can make positive, safe decisions when using digital tools.  Then as we all #ShareAwesome moments of our lives, we can remain happy and safe!

Like most parents, I am constantly posting pictures and videos of my kids to preserve those precious moments in time.  I feel so blessed that today's technology has allowed me to do this so easily.  I really enjoy capturing these moments with the push of a button and then being able to keep that memory just as fresh as it was when it happened in real time.
And although my kids are still young and I am the one doing all of the posting, before I know it they will be using their own digital skills and posting about their lives.  I am committed to teaching them, even at this young age, how to use digital tools safely.  Keeping my children safe online and offline is one of my most important jobs as a parent!  I have taken several opportunities to teach my kids about things such as keeping their bodies private, not being inappropriate, and that bullying is NEVER something we should take part in!  I value those discussions and know that they are paying attention and learning as they often reiterate the things I have taught them.
I am thankful that the National PTA and LifeLock have provided a way for us to get involved in this subject more and have created an amazing website where we can gain access to a variety of resources to help in this cause!  Take a look, educate yourselves and your families, and continue to #ShareAwesome moments in life using safe decisions!  (Be sure to check out our takeitfrommegirls Instagram to see some of my own #ShareAwesome moments!!)

  1. I'm so dreading when my kids are actually old enough to use the internet on their own. I'm glad there are resources such as this that will help me navigate this crazy, big world. Thanks Kristin!

  2. I can't imagine what the internet will be like when my littles get to the point that they are using it on their own. I'm so glad there are products to protect them and us.
